Biome choice mountain
At last the great Ziggurat - temple of failure and regret!
~ The Academic

The Mountain is the final destination at the end of every journey in Darkest Dungeon II. It is the source of the madness that is destroying the world.

The mountain is a place full of evil, nihilism and non-existence, your failures made flesh, the loathing of the world and your judgment. After fleeting from your mistakes, you hid in the deepest place of your mind while the apocalypse consumed humanity. It is time to face your failures, confront your fears and reclaim this world from your weakness... or die trying.

Icon roadblock obliviontear The End...

The inevitable end of your journey, awaits you.

With a trophy on your Stagecoach (including both of The Lost Crusade trophies), you will proceed to The Mountain's gates.

After facing the Cultists that guard the mountain you will face your Confession, if the party is victorious you will win the run and continue to the next Confession. Each chapter has a different Confession with different Final Bosses and the mountain growing gradually more corrupt until it becomes the absolute Temple of Evil.

There's no reason not to face your Failures.
